He and his wife were recently pitching Omega XL fatty acids on a 30-minute infomercial. The Great HealthWorks infomercial runs on Christian and mainstream TV stations in up to 150 markets. White receives $5 for every bottle of the $49.95 product sold.
Without Walls International is a church with roughly 25,000 members. White is part of the prosperity gospel movement. The Whites live in a $2.7 million dollar home and they have a Bentley and a Mercedes-Benz in their personal fleet of cars.
In a recent interview, White defended his material success: “What are [Jesus’] principles?” White asked. “If you think Jesus was poor, wants his clergy to be poor and have a vow of poverty, I would debate that.”
Clearly one cannot teach a prosperity gospel without being prosperous. Aside from pitching books and vitamins, what next for these men of God? Perhaps selling timeshares?
Oh, I forgot. Someone else did that.
